In S05E11 of Breaking Bad, a scene made me think of something. In the restroom a guy complained:
Nanny state. When I see a kid with his bicycle helmet on, I want to smack the shit out of him, like for his own good.
While the other man wiping blood of their shoes. It’s a charming little scene.
I don't understand the meaning of this scene. Is it sarcasm that the guy is like a nanny? Or sarcasm that modern American culture is like a nanny?
